Will Indians be better-off than Americans by 2060?

In 2011 the current membership of the OECD made up 65 per cent of global output, compared with a combined 24 per cent for China and India. By 2060 the two Asian giants will have a 46 per cent share of world GDP, the OECD members a shrunken 42 per cent. India's economy will be a bit bigger than America's, China's a lot, according to The Economist.

Even so the Chinese and Indians will still be much less well-off than Americans, it says.

Let's take a look at GDP per person in 2011 and 2060 around the world, including India.
